Tell me what you can! I got one of these last night and don't have a clue! What is a "fair" price to pay for one in decent cosmetic condition? Is it any fun to play? Etc.

Sadly I am out of space everywhere so it is currently in the garage folded up and I really don't have room to set it up and check it out right now. I am just wondering if it is a machine worth considering to try to make room for or should I just pass it along to someone into Zaccaria machines? I have never had a Zaccaria machine set up before so I would love to give it a chance but space tells me no.

Quoted from bigehrl:

We are getting ready to solve the space issue this Spring by selling off most of the collection and kind of starting over again. I love the "thrill of the chase" and enjoy trying different machines all the time without having to chase them down in public places but very few machines seem to become long term keepers. Every time I think I have "the perfect lineup" I decide I really don't need 1/2 of the stuff I own and start over again.

As far as the "space issue" I have always had an issue with space. I am 63 years old and I never remember not having to rent some sort of storage. Even back when I was in my teens I was renting a barn to store street rod & muscle cars parts and cars. I had owned over 30 cars before I got my drivers license and have been collecting something big ever since? I guess it could be worse but sometimes I really wonder!

The playfields usually clean up really nice because of the hardcoat used. Playability depends on the specific game, I don't have a lot of experience with Soccer Kings. David Gersic is the man for Zaccaria stuff in the US;

If you like 80s games, soccer kings will scratch your itch. Hopefully it's working as parts are hard to find and they are sometimes difficult to fix.

Soccer kings is a generation 2 game and of the 12 gen 2 games it's in my top 4. It's a fun game, has a cool upper play field and goalie mech and there are a bunch of targets.

I owned one for 4 years and miss it.

too-many-pins I played one at an auction last month, my first time playing a Zaccaria, and I liked it. I didn’t buy it because it sold for $850, too much in my opinion for a Zaccaria as parts are hard to find.

captainneo is a huge fan of Zacarria pins so I’ll invite him to share his opinions

Both Neo and I already have soccer kings; so likely not buyers.

I think it's a fun game. Basically hitting down drop targets gives you "kicks" at the goal at the upper playfield. If you kick enough goals, it lights the special. There's a couple other ways to score points, but that's the main one.

People's previous comments on Zac's in general are correct. Game specific parts will be next to impossible to find if anything is missing or broken; especially things with art.
Gen2 games typically sell $1000 - $2000 Sometimes more depending on title and condition

If your Soccer Kings is somewhat working and in good cosmetic shape and all there it's probably worth around $800
